Muse x2

Hi Everyone,

my Christmas card production is still in full I am playing in a few more challenges. And I do love the Muse challenges - thankfully there is two of them now :)
My first one I made for the Muse Christmas Vision challenge where Kimberly Wiener made this glittery masterpiece. I did a redux of it, keeping it more mellow. 

The die cuts I used are by Memory Box, the sentiment is by Neat&Tangled, To get some glitter on my card I took a splatter stamp by Stamplorations - Mixed Media Elements and stamped it in Versamark over the sentiment and glittered it up with adhesive embossing powder and of course glitter.

Kimberley's card:

The glitter splotch really doe not come out in the picture...too bad. It sparkles quite wonderful in real life....

The baubles are cut from shimmer paper and I mounted the whole card on wood PP.

My second card is for the regular Muse challenge. Michele Fergusen created that brilliant card for us to CASE and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to play....

The Santa and sentiment are Paper Smooches, the paint strips are Papertrey, I colored the Santa with Copics and mounted him on foam tape. Added enamel dots.

You can see how I was inspired, right?

I hope you are not yet sick and tired of Christmas cards - I warn you - I have some more coming up....

Happy Stamping!

Der Weihnachtsmann ist ja köstlich!!! der zaubert jedem erst mal ein leichtes Lächeln ins Gesicht.
Die Christbaumkugelkarte gefällt mir aber auch ehr gut. Du bist ja schon wieder sooooo wahnsinnig fleißig, als wolltest du alles nachholen, was du in der vergangenen Wochen versäumt hast.
Doch ich muss den Finger heben: Vorsicht!!! Mach langsam, du weißt selber genau warum.
Liebe sorgsame Grüße,

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!

Or you can see the same thing on my photo tutorial. With mirror
